Women’s 2023 World Cup Draw: Germany Get Three Unknowns

The draw for the 2023 women’s World Cup held in Australia and New Zealand has been made with the German national team in group H alongside Colombia, Morocco, and South Korea.

The tournament which will take place from 20th July to 20th August 2023 pits the women’s national team in a relatively straightforward group, from which they would expect to progress.

“Group H has three relatively unknown teams in it. It’s a big challenge for us to be able to analyse them,” said head coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg on Saturday after the draw was made.

“I’m looking forward to facing three very different opponents. South Korea are a very strong team, who play a very technically refined football, under a ‘German’ coach.

“Colin Bell is very experienced. It will be very exciting to analyse this team in the lead-up to the tournament, and to also face them at the World Cup. Colombia will definitely bring a lot of passion to the pitch. They always get stuck in and have a strong mentality. We haven’t seen much of this team lately, so we will need to prepare well to face them. Colombia have a totally different style of play.

“Morocco are making their World Cup debut and haven’t really been on our radar. We have never played against them, so this will be a first. We are looking forward to facing three very different opponents in our group, who will each pose a different challenge for us. We want to be successful, however, and will begin preparing for it.”

National team sporting director Joti Chatzialexiou added: “We will be coming up against three very different teams. You have to be fully focused from the get-go in a World Cup and we don’t want any slip ups in the group stage.

“World Cups don’t come every year so there’s a lot of excitement for the tournament, especially after a great European Championship this year. Our aim is to win the group and then get as far as possible in the knockout stage.”
